If you were casting a movie version of Hamlet, which actor would you choose to play Hamlet? Why? (Don't choose one of the actors we have watched!)
We have closely examined several of Hamlet's soliloquies at this point in the play. In a soliloquy, characters think out loud, pouring out their private thoughts. Modern movies and plays don't use soliloquies much, but they do employ similar devices. What are some soliloquy-like devices? Write about a few examples of them from movies or plays you've seen recently.
As we read Zen Shorts by Jon J. Muth, be looking for places where the illustrations change. Why does the author choose to represent his book this way? If this effective? Which of the "Zen shorts" is your favorite? Why?
Your warm-up today will be the Senior Presentation from Josten's.
Today we will review your vocabulary for our warm-up and then we will begin the background information for The Crucible.
Please make sure you turn in your 12 sentences before we go to the computer lab.
Today's bellwork will not be in your notebook, so it does not count toward our count. You will grab a Red Ribbon Week survey from the front of the room (by the green folders). Answer all the questions to the best of your ability. We will then go over the answers.
If you need to take picture retakes--let Miss Lamb know!

For your bellwork today, you will be compiling every warm-up activity you have done (not counting vocabulary handouts) and number them, starting with the earliest first and numbering through yesterday. If your warm-ups are in a jumbled mess, please put them in order to the best of your ability and CLEARLY number them.
Also, if you have your Hamlet Act One Study Guide questions, please get them out as well so that Miss Lamb can check them when she checks your warmups.
